Q & A: What do I wear to teach or TA as a graduate student?
This was my first question when I was admitted to a Masters program–how fancy do I need to get? A few business casual items can go a long way toward building your teaching wardrobe. Some to start with:
3-5 button up shirts (polka dot, maroon, buffalo checked)
Comfortable shoes! (Flats, oxfords)
A nice cardigan (thrifted, here’s a good one), and a blazer
I basically mix these items in with my casual tees, dresses, and jeans for teaching purposes.
